1) Until 1996 the statistics was compiled from the same dwellings. Since 1997 the statistics has been calculated from the same dwellings for government-subsidised and tenancies receiving housing allowance and for non-subsidised dwellings receiving no housing allowance the percentage change with regression model aiming at eliminating differencies in location, size and age of dwellings between statistics of different years. The total percentage change is usually obtained by aggregating the changes of each stratum. The percentage change is calculated from the index. Due to structural differencies in data sets, it should not be calculated directly from average rents.
2) From 2003 onwards the rents collected cover the whole reference year. Statistics published before year 2003 described the situation in April of the reference year.
